CAST & CREW
PLOT: Sergei Kolesnikov, a Russian official, tries to execute Sebastian Koch, who takes care of a file, that has the evidence against the former man. Jai Courtney, who gets arrested for a different incident, agrees to testify against Koch. Bruce Willis, Jai's father, comes to the rescue of his son. Their father-son duo, along with Koch, escapes from the place and reach a safe house. Jai reveals that he is a CIA agent, and Koch agrees to give it to him. Meanwhile, Jai's colleague dies, and many hurdles are created in the path of the trio. Will they get the file in their hands?
ANALYSIS: Skip Woods failed to give us reasons for most of the happenings in the movie. We never knew why Jai was arrested. The father-son duo were depicted like the fantasy heroes. It is totally absurd, when they crash land, and gets out with one or two scratches. Director Moore captures everything in shaky-cam, so as to create tension and suspense among the audience. He was able to achieve few good stunts only. The audience is fooled by the title since it has the words 'Die Hard.'
STAR PERFORMANCES: Bruce Willis lost his charm when compared to his looks and performances in the previous movies of this series. He looks old, and with the lack of enthusiasm. He is a complaining old man, who survives any sort of attack on him. He quotes 'I'm on vacation' many times, that it annoys us after a certain time. Jai exhibits no emotions and gives a boring performance.
WHAT'S THERE? Unfortunately, this movie is lacking, it's potential for improving its aspects. This movie is traveling downlane since the start of the series. So this movie does not have anything in a special column.
WHAT'S NOT THERE? The script is weak, and humor is lacking. One liner were missing. The antagonist role does not have much value to get mentioned.
VERDICT: The most loud and boring film of the series, that already got stale.
